Dealing with a sewage spill is undoubtedly one of the most unpleasant situations a homeowner or business owner can face.

It requires the expertise of trained professionals who can effectively clean and remove all traces of sewage water damage.

When it comes to sewage water damage, there are generally three categories, each indicating different levels of severity and potential hazards. Sewage-related floods typically fall into the more serious categories, requiring immediate attention and specialised treatment.
Category 1 Water Damage: Also known as “pure water,” this type of damage poses minimal risk to human health. It includes incidents such as supply line breakage, sump overflow, equipment failure, or pipe breakage. In most cases, the affected building materials can be naturally dried without significant health concerns for the occupants.
Category 2 Water Damage: Commonly referred to as “grey water,” this category presents a moderate risk of contamination. Examples include toilet flushing, washing machine drain backups, or drain pump failures. When dealing with Category 2 floods, certain materials may need to be removed and dried, followed by disinfection to eliminate potential health issues.
Category 3 Water Damage: Known as “black water,” this is the most severe and hazardous type of flood. Category 3 floods encompass sewage backups, flooding from rivers or groundwater, and even seawater intrusion. In these cases, all affected materials must be promptly removed, followed by thorough drying and crucial disinfection steps to eliminate any health risks.
